Security Council meet for nuclear disarmament

The UN Security Council held a briefing and discussion on March 18 about nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation. The session, which can be watched live on UNTV, was being held during the UNSC Presidency of Japan.

The objective of the discussion was to promote dialogue between nuclear and non-nuclear weapon States. “Conducting discussions towards a world without nuclear weapons — with the participation of nuclear weapons States — is “extremely relevant and meaningful,” says Ambassador Yamazaki Kazuyuki, Permanent Representative of Japan to the United Nations in New York. 

UN Secretary-General António Guterres briefed the Council, warning that “nuclear weapons are the most destructive weapons ever invented, capable of eliminating all life on Earth. Today, these weapons are growing in power, range and stealth. An accidental launch is one mistake, one miscalculation, one rash act away”.
